Week 44 # 318 - Collaboration w/ Paul Hawkins

Seventy quids-worth of pound coins in my pockets
from the one-armed bandits,
slots, fruit machines, pokies -
I just can’t leave them be
the smash is what dragged me under.
I did look old for my age
not that you care -
another body
another shift of stat-bloated admin.
